"slightly weak but pleasing aroma, nothing out of the ordinary, just a little lacking. the taste was more of the same. had the intensity of a pale, not an ipa. ok."

Another nice run of the mill IPA from FS. Medium bodied, medium flavored, medium in the hop department, this one definitely can do ya well on a hot day, but overall is fairly square.

this 22 oz bottle was poured into a standard pint glass. The color wasa dar, dakr orange and was very cloudy. The head was white and creamy looking. The smell was very faint and made me think that since this was a 2006 the hops must have faded. When I tasted it the hops had indeed faded. I got a very malty, grainy taste from this one. I am pretty sure it was past its prime. I’d love to try a fresh one as their Wreck The Halls IPA is delicious. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-06-2007 16:02:42

Lubiere (10163) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2008
A dark hazy amber ale with an extra thick frothy off white head. Aroma of citrusy caramel, and definite profound floral c-hops. In mouth, a classy full bodied IPA with lots of citrus and floral hops. A great IPA. Tasted in August 2007.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Slightly disappointed with this, FS usually turns out some pretty expertly hopped IPAs but this was nothing to write home about. Citrusy grapefruit aroma, with a aggressively overcarbonated mouthfeel, leaving a slightly chalky aftertaste, and somewhat less than substantial malt background. Leaves me wanting something better.

Lunkie (1422) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2008
Sweet hop malt aroma. Cloudy orange amber colour with fantastic head and lacing. Sweet malt hop flavour with spicy aftertaste that lingers. Smooth full palate.

hayduke (3385) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 25, 2007
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a clear copper to orange with a fat off-white head that left moderate lacing. Nose of citrus hops and light malt. Lively mouthfeel, and flavor is lightly sweet and caramel malts with the grapefruit hops leading to a dry and somewhat bitter finish. A very nice IPA, which would benefit from just a little more hops.
